I was really excited to try Tropical Traditions Coconut Flour!! We don't use wheat flour in our house, but just your normal white flour. It's what I was raised with and what I'm used to. But we've been trying to get everyone in the house to eat healthier for awhile now, and I knew that this had to be better for us.
I decided to make a blueberry buckle with it. It's not on the Coconut Recipes that Tropical Traditions has, but it was one of my dad's favorites and I had plenty of fruit in the freezer. However, when I actually got the berries unthawed, I realized they were raspberries. I pulled the wrong bag out of the freezer! Oh well, I was making it anyway and I'm glad I did!
The Organic Coconut Flour is semi-sweetened, so I cut back a 1/4 of a cup of sugar in the recipe. The blend of raspberries, coconut, and spices just bursts in our mouths. I was hoping to take a picture for you, but it was eaten too fast! Guess they do like my cooking after all lol
On a health standpoint, the Organic Coconut Flour is 100% gluten free, high in fiber and high in protein. You see all those commercials about eating high fiber cereal. Just put a teaspoon of the coconut flour in a glass of water, stir, and enjoy! You can also use it in smoothies and many other uses. You can see all of the Tropical Tradition Coconut recipes here.
I am very happy with Tropical Traditions Coconut Flour. I'm going to be using it in a roux sauce this weekend when I'm cooking. I think the flavor will be a perfect addition to a soup.
The great people at Tropical Traditions are letting one of my readers win their own Organic Coconut Flour!
